Hi! Recently someone changed MapBox Imagery URL in JOSM, which resulted 
in different keys for the same imagery in imagery offset database. This 
prompted me to create a distinct id for mapbox imagery. The regular 
expression for matching URL is 
"tiles\.mapbox\.com/v[3-9]/openstreetmap\.map". All mapbox imagery 
offsets in the database were converted to use this id, JOSM plugin from 
this moment also uses it. If you actively use offsets plugin, please 
update it now to access your old stored offsets.

I really hope this is the same layer, with same offsets. If not, please 
tell me earlier, so I can undo the database change.

If you maintain a different database of imagery, please update it
